Zack Snyder all but confirmed recently that Jude Law, Keanu Reeves and Patrick Wilson will star in Watchmen, but now John Cusack tells MTV he would love to be a part of the film:
MTV: You can’t Google your name without getting a hit for “Watchmen.” Everyone wants you to be in this movie.
Cusack: I’m in. Talk to Zack [Snyder].
MTV: Have you read the comic?
Cusack: Yeah, I actually love the comic. Maybe this is how people get jobs in the modern world. Like, I come on MTV and then he’ll see it and give it to me.
MTV: Are you familiar with the character of Nite Owl?
Cusack: There’s that guy and then there’s Rorschach, right? I like that. I like that stuff.
MTV: Would you prefer to play Rorschach or Nite Owl?
Cusack: I haven’t read the script nor have I ever met Mr. Snyder. I thought that was a really, really cool comic. I’m into it. But, you know, we have to talk to Zack’s representatives. What studio is doing the film?
MTV: Warner Bros.
Cusack: See, who knows. Warner Bros. might want Ashton Kutcher.
MTV: I don’t think that would work. John Cusack would work.
Cusack: Welcome to my world.
Cusack can next be seen in 1408, opening June 22.
